"This was by far the most engaging and relevant professional development I've ever had."

"I learned so much as a writer and teacher."

"My only critique about the Summer Institute: it was too short!"

"This week provided me with things I can put to real use right away to engage my students in writing."

"This content is exactly what my colleagues and I really need!"
